Krieger is a keyboard artist with extensive training in early music and early keyboard technique. While pursuing his doctoral degree under the supervision of the renowned Bach scholars Quentin Faulkner and George Ritchie, Krieger studied the keyboard literature of central Germany. He expanded his repertoire by further studies in Spain, Italy and Germany, exploring the Iberian and Italian repertoire and technique for early keyboards.

A citizen of Brazil and of Germany, Krieger was raised in the Brazilian Amazon region, where his parents are missionaries to the Xerente tribe. He started his musical training at the Music Conservatory of the Universidade Federal de Goiás, in Brazil. After further studies in Germany, he relocated to the United States, and completed graduate degrees at Brigham Young University and the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.

Krieger has performed solo organ and harpsichord recitals in Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Canada and the U.S. In addition to his solo organ and harpsichord recitals, he often performs with early music ensembles, having played continuo for all the major orchestral and choral works of J.S. Bach and Heinrich Schütz, among others. He is also an active musicologist and ethnomusicologist, having produced works on the Christian hymnology of the Xerente Tribe, Portuguese Lyrical Diction and early music treatises related to keyboard repertoire. His book An English Translation and Commentary on Andreas Werckmeister’s Organum Gruningense Redivivum was released in November 2009 by VDM-Verlag, Saarbrücken, Germany.
